What is a Western Myall ?

Western Myall

Western Myall
(acacia papyrocarpa)

This is one of the slowest growing wattles, taking up to 10 years to reach a height of 0.5 metres, and 150 - 250 years to reach 6 metres. The population of this species has been dramatically affected by the introduction of rabbits and sheep.
Sheep in particular cause a twofold damage, in that, apart from grazing, their hooves disturb the ground around younger trees, which can result in the death of these junior trees
